consulate in benghazi on the 11th anniversary of the attacks of september 11. these attacks do many things, but they remind us i think first of the bravery and commitment of government officials who serve in countries around the world, supporting the struggles of people in those countries, to live free. and by doing so work to improve our own national security. the attack in libya also reminds us that even though the core of al qaeda has been seriously weakened, we still face threats from an evolving and fractious set of terrorist groups and individuals united by a common ideology which is that of haven't -- violent islamist extremism. ask have some questions to the three of you about the nature of the terrorist threat today and specifically with regard to the reaction to this film whether you think it has raised the threat level against any places or institutions or individuals here in the united states. reporting to us on the terrorist threat to the homeland today, i also hope you'll address other concerns such as the effort to counter homegrown violent islamist groups and the threat to
are in benghazi for us right now. what's the scene like there? >> well, everyone we have been speaking to and i literally just landed here two hours ago, is incredibly distraught of what took place. they are in utter shock and want to make clear how anguished they are over what transpired. they want the world to know, this is not libya or an action that was supported by the vast majority of libyans. this most certainly is not why they want revolution. many of them reiterated against the fact that they expect them to the united states to nato for their aid. that being said, all of them want to see their government disarm with these gangs that are roaming about with basically pure impunity. some of these gangs are remnants of the revolutionary forces that were established during the fighting that took place that has been robust to lay down their weapons for a variety of reasons. some are more extremists and they emerge from these evolution nary forces. this brings to light the sinister -- but outside of the authority of the government itself. the realization here very much that this is not the pa
everything that has transpired since the attacks in benghazi. i think the president, the secretary tried to hit all these points and yet this backdrop of military dignity and precision, an attempt to offer comfort to the families that their loved ones will not be forgotten, this is the kind of honors that the military has rendered so many times over the last 11 years, whether it is the most junior private in the u.s. army that has fallen on the battlefields of afghanistan, a senior diplomat that has revered throughout the muslim world, or a former navy s.e.a.l. who served with honor and distinction and tried to go on and serve again in the diplomatic corps. it is the same honors, the same rendering of respect and dignity that really the military renders to all and has so many times in recent years done. >> absolutely, barbara. it is hard to, as i said to watch this and not be moved. we were fighting back the tears here in the studio. i'm sure people around the world were doing the same. and one can only imagine, only imagine what the family members of these men are dealing with right now

on a different topic. it seems that the u.s. ande and libya have different accounts of the attacks in benghazi. there are reports that libyan officials warned the u.s. of the growing extremist threat prior to the attack. they admit they had could not control these militias. that directly counter what is administration officials have said. this is just a reaction to the islamic film. >> what i can tell you is that we have the right information about what we believe was the per siptating cause of the protest and the violence. based on the information that we have had available. there is an ongoing investigation, the f.b.i. is investigating, and that investigation will follow the facts wherever they lead. what we do know about libya is that it's a country that emerged from war and revolution and you have a new government trying to assert its authority as that country makes a transition to democracy and broader representation for all libyans. and broader rights for all libyans. and in that environment there are certainly in this post-war, post-revolution environment, there are vast numbers of weap
of their bag of tactics to come at us, i think is still an open question. >> [inaudible] your sense of benghazi now, and a couple of things i want to discuss. was there discussion of putting marines at the compound to help secure it? what is your assessment and analysis of al qaeda and affiliate's or inspired organizations, their ability to assemble and generate an attack capability of this sort very rapidly? and for the united states to openly have no sense that it needed to provide the security to meet that potential threat. what does it say to you about al qaeda abilities in that region? >> first of all, with regards to benghazi, we responded to a request to provide a fast team to go into tripoli and provide additional security there, and we responded to that. at that point, for all intents and purposes, benghazi had been pretty much unoccupied by any of the diplomatic and other security personnel that were there. the main focus then was on tripoli and the embassy in tripoli, and that is what we responded to. with regards to al qaeda and its efforts in that area, i think it is fair to say th
. >> we hear from you fully about your -- benghazi right now and a couple of specifics i want to ask you. was there ever any discussion, after the benghazi attack, of putting marines at the compound in benghazi to help secure it? and what is your assessment and analysis of al qaeda and al qaeda affiliates or inspired organizations there, their ability to assemble and generate an attack capability of this sort very rapidly, and for the united states to openly have no sense that it needed to provide the security to meet that potential threat? what does it say to you about al qaeda related groups in that region? >> okay. first of all with regards to benghazi, what we, what we responded to was a request to provide a f.a.s.t. team that would go into tripoli and try to provide additional security there and we responded to that and did that. at that point, for all intents and purposes, benghazi had been, you know, pretty much unoccupied by any of the diplomatic and, other security personnel that were there. so, the main focus then was on tripoli and the embassy in tripoli and that's what we res

attacks on the consulate in benghazi claimed the lives of the u.s. ambassador to libya and three other u.s. personnel. the attack came as muslim protested a u.s.-made film which they say insults the prophet muhammed. white house press secretary jay carney said the fbi investigation is ongoing. he said the investigators have no information at this point that suggests that the attack was significantly preplanned. carney said that investigators are now looking into al qaeda affiliates, in particular the group known as al qaeda in the islamic magreg. >>> the conflict of interest in syria is causing more human suffering and civilian casualties. opposition activists say 55 people were killed in an explosion at a gas station triggered by a government air strike. amateur video shows the site in the northern city near the turkish border. people are suffering from a serious shortage of daily goods and were lined up at the station to buy fuel. a day earlier, rebel fighters had seized a location near the city. witnesses say government forces were engaged in a fierce bad with rebel to regain control
have reached benghazi, the scene of the killing of chris stevens and three other americans. that area is not a safe place to operate in if you are american but there are concerns at the crime scene ten days later might be contaminated. likewise confirmed the marine rapid response anti-terrorist squad that was thrown in here last week remains here in tripoli. the embassy is well guarded amid other questions that u.s. military teams were not dispatched fast enough. critics are saying that and some say the security at the consulate in benghazi was not strong enough and might have led to the problems and warnings were not taken from other attacks by militant groups in benghazi in months prior to an attack. militants strong on that side of the country. in defiance of that and honoring the late ambassador, is killing hitting home, we are watching live scenes coming from benghazi of a protest. thousands of people out in the street basically calling on the government in tripoli to do more to crack down on this militant group. there was one hitch today which is one of those militant groups sai
terrorist act against the u.s. consulate in benghazi. >> we also need to understand that this is a fairly volatile situation and it is in response, not to the united states policy, not to the administration, not to the american people, it is in response to a video. >> to think that the libyan people are somehow involved in this is just not acrats. it was a terrorist attack. organized and carried out by terrorists. >> the people of egypt, libya, yemen and tunisia did not trade the terny of a dictator for the terny of a mob. >> when it comes to criticism, i would note that many observers, commentators and foreign policy expert, as well as elected officials, democrat and republicans, have pointed out that criticism in particular from governor romny and his team in what seems to be an attempt to score a political point, has been both factually wrong and poorly timed. >> we are told by the media that mitt romney spoke to soon the other day. we are told that mitt romney has no foreign policy experience. yet it was romney who issued the most responsible and presidential statement of anybody. >>
, and gratitude. the large demonstrations condemning this lascivious crime in the city of van ghazi -- benghazi and other libyan cities is the true reflection of a feeling of the libyan people and its feelings toward violence and extremism. libya will never be home to extremist groups. we shall always be a peaceful moslem country, one of moderation -- peaceful muslim country, one of moderation. mr. president, the new libya will be a place of hospitality, transparency, enabling women and youth. it will be a libya by all and for all at the same time. it cannot fail to condemn the anti- islam campaign and those defaming his profit. -- prohet. such campaigns increase hatred and provocation and attention among civilizations. they go beyond the concept of free expression. this makes it necessary for the general assembly of the united nations to adopt a covenant in order to criminalize actions that are insulting of the symbols of all religions. and we, as muslims, believe fully in the unity of mankind, of the brotherhood of man, and we express our support for dialog between religions and cooperation,
. chris went to benghazi in the early days of the libyan revolution, arriving on a cargo ship. as america's representative, he helped the libyan people as they coped with violent conflict, cared for the wounded, and crafted a vision for the future in which the rights of all libyans would be respected. and after the revolution, he supported the birth of a new democracy, as libyans held elections, and built new institutions, and began to move forward after decades of dictatorship. chris stevens loved his work. he took pride in the country he served, and he saw dignity in the people that he met. and two weeks ago, he traveled to benghazi to review plans to establish a new cultural center and modernize a hospital. that's when america's compound came under attack. along with three of his colleagues, chris was killed in the city that he helped to save. he was 52 years old. i tell you this story because chris stevens embodied the best of america. like his fellow foreign service officers, he built bridges across oceans and cultures, and was deeply invested in the international cooperation that th
in benghazi were attacks on america. we are grateful for the assistance we receive from the libyan government and from the libyan people. there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice. i also appreciate that in recent days, the leaders of other countries in the region, including egypt, tunisia, and yemen, have taken steps to secure our diplomatic facilities. and so have religious authorities around the world. but, understand that the attacks of the last two weeks are not simply an assault on america. there are also an assault on the very ideals upon which the united nations was founded. the notion that people can resolve their differences peacefully. diplomacy can take the place of work. -- diplomacy can take the place of war. all of us have a stake in working for a greater opportunity for our citizens. if we are serious about upholding these ideals, it will not be enough to put more guards in front of an embassy or to put out statements of regret and wait for the outrage to pass. we are serious about these ideals. we must speak
is really answering the question about what happened that day in benghazi. the fact that we have chris stevens murdered, he was assassinated that day. and i think that that truly concerns me. and so to mitt romney, maybe it's time that you buy some airtime. take some of that money. cool around the mainstream media, by some airtime, addressed the nation. somebody needs to put us at ease. certainly, it's not the president of the united states, so it's time for mitt romney to have a game changer and step up to the plate and become the president of the united states, if not by election, do it by fiat. megyn: after the tragedy in 1983, it gives you a real sense of his ability to sort of try to stick up for our principles. >> we americans seek peaceful avenues before resorting to the use of force. and we did. we tried i diplomacy of the condemnation, and economic sanctions, and demonstrations of military force. none succeeded. despite our repeated warnings, qadhafi continued his reckless policy of intimidation, his relentless pursuit of terror. we counted on america. he counted on us to be p
